Forum: texts Subject: Deleting an upload

I created an upload at:
https://archive.org/create

This created a page at:
https://archive.org/details/

I wanted to delete the page because I found the item was already being archived at:
http://archive.org/web/*/...

so the "details" page is redundant and not necessary.

What is the correct way to remove this page?

I edited the page and looked for a "Remove" feature somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

So, I deleted the uploaded file, and cleared out most of the meta fields making them "Empty" (or with just the word "Empty"), but some (xml ...) files remain in the "tree-root".

Next, I re-opened the page at:
https://archive.org/details/

And noticed the page is still there, but for the most part it is empty.

Then, I clicked to "Flag" the page and selected that the page is: "Broken or empty data"

Is what I did sufficient to remove the page?
